Motive 

Fireplaces of today are nearly all of special size and design 
due to tlie advancement of tlie arti.stic sense of the Home 
Buildeis. 

The use of irreg:ular instead of regular dimensions gives 
greater latitude in individual design and permits the induction 
of personality to the fireplace. These circumstances create a 
need for specially made I'Mreplace PHirnishings, such as Fendei-s, 
Hoods, Grates, Screens and Spark Guards which will preserve 
the artistic appearance and at the same time retain theii' 
utility. It is this need which we design to fill as specialists in 
Fireplace Eciuipmer.t, AVe are prepared to make anything spe- 
cial and shall be glad tn have you write your needs "and desires 
to us for assistance. 



Quality 



Wc do not aim to compete with goods manufactured on a 
price basis or with goods made for appearance only. 

"Goods made light first, price made right second," is the 
working- basis of all of our productions. 

We guarantee all of our goods to bo as represented and 
stand back of our product with an aim to not only satisfy but 
please our Customers. The many expressions of satisfaction 
and delight which have come to us voluntarily from our custo- 
mers is llie best assurance of our service and riuality.

Finishes on Brass Goods 

Articles of solid brass or coi>per can be finished in any style 
of plated finishes and offer a wider range than do articles of 
iron. 

Brass ma.v be had In its natural color in either Brushed, 
Polished, t)ld r)i- Antique finish. 

Brushed brass is a satin finish, natural shade of brass. 

Polished is a higiily burnished surface. 

Old or Anticiue is dull in finish, vaiied in shade from brush 
brass to oxidized brass and background and internal corners 
dark. 

Copper goods can be fui-nished in shades, such as Antique, 
Briglit or Burnished, Japanese Bronze or Verde Antique. 

We also furnish brass goods in Silver-Oxidized, Colonial 
Sliver, or Anticiue Gold finish. The last three finishes are used 
largely on very high grade of brass goods. 

Prices on these finishes will be quoted on request. 

When special finishes are desired, it is advisable to send us 
a, sample, or if yuu wish to match Corbin or Yale and Towne 
finish specify the number. 



Finishes on Iron Goods 

'We supply a wide range of finishes to meet the most exact- 
ing taste. 

Our blaclv, the standard finish for plain goods, is a dull 
lusterless black finish. 

Swedish finish or Flemish finish, higii liglits polished steel, 
background black and is best prodviced on hammered surfaces. 

Old Copper, a finish often called statuary bronze, is a heavy 
triple plate tn .i?olden brown copper. 

Japanese Bronze is the same as Old Copper in its make-up, 
but the color verges on the point of black with faint bronze 
effects. 

Old Brass, a very desirable finish of a Golden efCect or very 
light bronze shaded, with high lights polished, background and 
internal corners dark. 

^Ve can also furnish any special flniali desired but do not 
recommend all finishes otlier than those above described due to 
the fact that iron does not always make a satisfactory body in 
some flnislies. 

The assortment of finishes permits of almost any scheme of 
decorative effects. We will gladly give you our suggestions if 
you will write us as to your inoblem.

Franklin Stoves 

Those who arc admirers of tlie 
furniture and decoi'ation.s of earl.v 
Colonial da.vs ivill find the Franli- 
lin Stoves particularly appropriate 
for tlieir fireplaces. 

Those who want the clieer and 
beaut.v of the open grate in a room 
wliere there is no fireplace will 
have their wants filled, for these 
Franklins can Ije connected bj' a 
stove]3ipe with an.v cliimne.\'. 

The Franklins gives muctt mnii- 
heat than do the ordinary grates, 
and especiall.v when they stand 
out in tlie room. 

V\'he.n standing on a wood floor, 
it is not absolutely necessary to 
have a protection beneatli " the 
l>'ranklin, altliough such a cover- 
ing is desirable. A very satisfac- 
tory arrangement is to la,\' tiling 
on the floor, and in this way in- 
i-rease tiie resemblance tt) a real 
fireplace. 

Bellows 

Everj' fireside should liave 
its bellows, if for no reason 
except decoration. 

A real old pair of bellows is 
a much prized heiiloom to 
anyone fortunate to ]3ossoss 
tlieni.

Mi.s.sion .styles are hand wrought throughout 
Ihey are handsomely finished and are made in 
AVrought Iron, Hammered Brasf^. and Ham-

K.vtra Torohe.s are convenient and mav be 
procured. One of them placed in the tankard 
after removal of the torch which is in active 
use, will be ready in a few minules to use in 
anotlier fireplace, or to rekindle after fire has 
burned low. 

No appreliension need be felt as to the safety 
of the Cape Cod Fire Bighters. The torch 
Ignites slowly and the tankard is tightly cov-

To .Start a Fire — Tjight the torch with a match 
and place under the logs; or, hold a piece of 
paper under torch as it is removed from the 
tankard, pu.sh both paper and torch under the 
logs and light the paper, this will ignite the 
torcli. It will burn for about fifteen minutes 
with a steady flame, which quickly envelops tlic 
logs. Before the torch has burned out the logs 
will be thoroughly kindled, no matter how care- 
lessly they ma.v have been laid. 

Do not replace torch in tankard tmtil it has 
cooled,

Hoods 

Hoods were first used principally to 
overcome smoky fireplaces and in many 
cases are very elTective for this pvit- 
pose, but it was found that a Avell- 
designed hood added so much to the 
appearance of the fireplace that they 
have become very popular just for their 
added attractiveness, giving- just the 
right tr)uch to an otherwise plain and 
severe fireplace. Owing to the varying- 
sizcs of fireplaces today it is almost 
impossible to make them in stock sizes. 
We make them, however, to fit any size 
fireplace. We would suggest in order- 
ing- that you send us the width and 
lieight of the fireplace opening-; also 
total width of fireplace and height from 
lluor to underside of nearest shelt, 
stating- the material of which the flre- 
(jlace is built, viz.: brick or tile and 
their size. A rough sketch of the fire- 
place crudely drawn off-hand with 
measurements marked, helps us won- 
derfuUv to furnish a hood just right, 
and provide for its fasteniniar. It is also 
advisable to state if the hood is to De 
used for a fireplace that smokes, as we 
can always favor thi.s purpose when 
making- up the hood. Upon receipt ot 
such information we shall be very glad 
to send a sketch and quote prices in 
different metals and finishes. 

AVe manufacture a number ot ait- 
ferent patterns in fireplace hoods, ot 
Wrought Iron in Lusterless Black fin- 
ish, Grev Hammered Swedish finish, or 
in Oxidized Brass. Japanese Bronze or 
Old Copper plated finish on iron. These 
plated finishes are lasting- and do not 
tarnish. They give a splendid rich ap- 
pearance. We also make these hoods 
in genuine brass or copper or we can 
make them according- to your own de- 
sign. Anv of thi?se hoods may be had 
in hammered effects . at slight extra 
cost.

Jackson Dustless Ash Trap 



Common Ash Traps 







m& 




Those who have had experience with fireplaces know 
how unpleasant it is to have ashes blow baclt into the 
room when they are being- dumped into the ash pit. The 
reason for this is that the ashes replace the air in the pit 
forcing the dust back through the ash trap door. Our 
Dustless Ash Trap overcomes this nuisance. It is so 
arranged that when dumping- the ashes the top is closed, 
preventing dust from blowing into room.

Colonial Driftwood Gas Logs have an Individual feed 
for each log tliat burns and are controlled by a twin 
valve, with separate handle for each log. You can burn 
one log- or both as desired. Connection is made with gas 
supplj' same as any ordinary gas log. The Driftwood 
requires Ijut a very small vent because its special ar- 
rangement burns all of the gas instead of permitting it 
to go to waste, which fact actually increases its heat 
value. It has a water reservoir in the back log. Made 
in following sizes:

The Colonial Head 

is the only Damper made which 

provides for Expansion and 

Contraction within itself 



Built in sections of the best gi"ay iron stove 
castings, securely bolted together and reinforced 
with a steel angle bar. It is rigid, extra heavy, 
and able to sustain great weight, yet designed and 
constructed so as to allow for the movement of 
expansion without disturbing the outer work. 
This prevents the face of the fireplace from 
cracking. 

The steel reinforcing angle bar sets half way up 
the sloping . front of the Damper. The ledge 
which it forms furnishes a footing on which to 
build the common brick backing and on which to 
anchor the facing. It prevents the backing from 
sliding down and bulging out the front of the 
fireplace. This is an important feattire.

A mason expeiiencecl in fireplace l3uilding wili spend much 
more time in forming the Throat than the cost of the 
Colonial Head. With it an inexperienced workman can't 
build wrong at this vital point. The Colonial Head sets 
above the bottom of the span over opening. This saves 
time because the fire brick need not come to exact levels. 

Style A is the regular 
style of Colonial Head 
Throat and Damper. 
Controlled with a 
ey operated from 
the face of the fire- 
place on the left 
hand side when fac- 
ing the fireplace. 



The base flanges of the Colonial are made small to compel 
the use of the correct size. Although the Colonial Head 
is regularly made with its base ends sloping in toward the 
back, it can be obtained with square base ends at no 
extra charge. 





Style B is operated 
with a key which 
comes out just below 
the arch bar of the 
fireplace, on the left- 
hand side. May be 
had with key in 
center. 




Style C is made with 
key coming through 
at the end or return 
of the fireplace at the 
right hand side when 
facing it. Can come 
througii the left- 
hand end.

HIS is the latest improved style of the Colonial Head Throat and Damper. All the quality features 
of other Colonial styles are incorporated in its design. In addition it combines Wide Adaptability 
with Easy Operation and Perfect Draft Control. ■ ], . 



T 



Wide Adaptability: Can be used in any style of 
fireplace — stone or marble, brick, tile or wood, 
arched or square opening. No need to cut through 
the facing or the end (return) for a key. Style E 
can be set in any desired position in the chimney 
throat: high or low, forward or back, according to 
the requirements of the fireplace design and the 
flue construction. This is an advantage vital to the 
proper working of the fireplace. It is found only 
in the Colonial. 

Easy Operation : The draft is controlled by a lever 
arm which comes down in the center of the fireplace 
opening. This lever arm can be lengthened if the 
damper is set high in the throat. It can be inclined 
toward the front or rear, if the construction requires 
the damper to be set forward or back, A poker is

easily hooked through the large ring in the end, so 
that the draft may be regulated without stooping, 

Perfect Draft Control: The fwc positions of the

control under every condition of wind or weather. 

The Colonial- Head Throat and. Damper in its various 
styles is the result of thirty years building fireplaces. 
The best architects specify it, the leading builders 
prefer it, and informed home owners demand it. 

The Colonial Head properly installed insures correct 
construction of the vital part of the fireplace, elimi- 
nates smoking, affords protection against flue fires, 
gi\'es greatest heat radiation with perfect smoke 
escapement and saves fuel. Comes in five styles of 
tweh'e sizes each.

If your fireplace is to radiate cheeriness, a crack- 
ling fire will "blase on the grate and the hearth will be 
furnished with effectual equipnient. Then you'll enjoy itrt 
ruddy glow and think how useless a xireless fireplace is. 

Logs are sometimes burned on i.he andiron ehanks; 
a grate though keeps the v/ood off the hearth until it is 
entirely burned out. The open end grateg are best for log 
fires, although coal can be burned on them too, A fireset— 
poker, shovel, tongs, and perhaps a brash is almost necess- 
ary for tending the fire. 

A spark guard or folding screen is a real necessity. 
Guards which fit snug over the opening, extending out about 
7" to cover the andirons are the most effectual. If the 
fire h-a.'u not b'lrned out when you retire you feel no anxiety 
if one of these is t:ised. The folding screen is more con- 
veniently handled, and conr^iequently is often preferred. 

An extensive line of accessories will be found in the 
catalog "Eve '-y thing for the Fireplace" which v/e =,re sending. 
There are many finishes also for your -election,. 

A 25^ discount m.ay be deducted from prices in Aug. 1, 
1923 list inserted in front cover of the catalog. Prom the 
balance 5^ is allowed if remittance accompanies your order. 

Is your fireplace umusual in design or size? Do you 
wish -'.he fireplace outfit to match your hardware? We shall 
be glad to offer suggestions if yon will tell us your ideas. 
What is the size oi* the opening: front width, back width, 
depth, and height? Vi'ill yon burn coal or wood? 

Bqiiip your fireplace for use now and build a fire!

Common Mistakes in Fireplaces 




The Colonial Fireplace Co 

4603-17 Roosevelt Road, Chicago, Illinois 




SECTION VIEW 

Showing how to set Damper with 8 inch 

facing of Brick or Stone. 

Our dampers should be set close up to the 
back of the front facing which is usually 4 
inches deep. Damper operating rods are made 
the right length for wall this thickness. 

Sometimes it is necessary on very deep and 
large fireplaces to set damper 4 or even 8 
inches behind front facing. In such cases it is 
advisable to set the damper higher in the 
throat, and of course a longer operating rod 
is necessary. 

You do not have to stop work in such cases. 

Set the damper and use the rod you have to 
carefully line and level up with. Build the 
rod in the wall but leave it so that you can 
pull it out easily. 

Notify the dealer from w^hom you purchased 
the damper. If he does not happen to have 
a rod of the proper length on hand, send a 
postal card direct to us stating how much 
longer the rod should be. The rod of proper 
length will be sent parcel post immediately. 
Be careful to save the screw attachment, 
traveller, key, and sleeve you have. 

Do not build a wide, flat sofHt in front of 
damper. Always shape w^ith brick and mor- 
tar. Use metal lath to hold plaster. Plaster 
smooth the slope from the back of the angle 
bar to the front bottom edge of danvper as 
shown in the above detail.

draft turn the key on the outside of the fireplace and adjust the damper door to a fraction of an inch. On Style 

E, ' damper door will stop wherever desired by inserting hook poker in ring and pushing or pulling. 
All Colonial Heads are drilled and tapped ready to be converted into Styles A, B, or E with the proper attach- 
ments. 



The Colonial Head is set easily and quickly by following the 
<lirection8 below. 

FIRST — Attach operating device to the Damper Head accord- 
ing to the instructions given below for the style of damper to 
be used. 

SECOND — Be sure the weight of the Damper Head rests solid 
upon the brick lining. If necessary to bed up USE SPAWLS 
OF BRICK for bearing, slush around base of damper with 
mortar afterward. DO NOT ALLOW THE WEIGHT OF THE 

DAMPER TO REST UPON THE OPERATING ROD. 

THIRD — The operating device should work EASILY. Allow 
a little play. 

FOURTH — Be sure the bolt connecting the arm of the operat- 
ing device to the damper door is NOT fastened too tight. 
This should be loose. 

We recommend placing the Colonial Head so that operating 
device will come through at the first or second course of 
brick above the opening. Use angle bar to carry the brick over 
the opening. 

Always bring brick lining up a little SMALLER than the base 
opening of damper head. If the directions are followed the 
damper will work perfectly and save its own cost in the con- 
struction of the fireplace. 

The head may be set while building rough chimney before 
fireplace facing is built. WE RECOMMEND, HOWEVER. 
FOR BETTER RESULTS, that it be left out until ready to build 
Fireplace Facing, in which case the rough opening should be 
left at least ONE FOOT HIGHER THAN HEIGHT OF FIN- 
ISHED FIREPLACE OPENING. 



If Colonial Head is set and chimney not entirely built it la 
best to protect the damper door and lugs until chimney is 
finished. 

When the job is finished and before leaving — see that the 
damper is not clogged with mortar and that it works freely. 

To Attach Operating Device 

STYLE "A" — ^Remove the split key and withdraw the rod from 
the hollow screw. Make sure the rod has not been bent. 
Pass rod through collar fastened at front of head, then through 
the hollow screw and into the opening in the back bar of the 
head. Replace split key and bolt arms to the lug on the 
damper door. 

STYLE "B" — Is connected in the same manner as Style "A," 
except damper key comes out below opening through a longer 
collar at front of damper. Key at end of rod drops below the 
opening. (See Section Style "B.") 

STYLE "C" — Loosen the set screw on the gear wheel and 
withdraw rod. Insert rod through pipe and sleeve, then, 
through hole at end of damper into gear wheel. This rod is 
adjustable to the width of the pilaster. When proper width of 
pilaster is determined turn rod so that flat part comes under 
the set screw and tighten. 

The large pipe sleeve is used to protect the rod which passes 
through the brickwork, or flue, at side. 

STYLE "E" — Fasten slotted toothed bracket to inside front of 
head; two holes are drilled and tapped in all dampers for this 
purpose. Bolt arm to door, not too tightly, set operating ring 
to proper angle and depth. Ring should hang about one inch 
below opening. (See Section Style "E.") 




Beware of Imitations. 

Colonial Head Throat and Dampers 
are plainly marked. Don't risk the 
success of your fireplace on cheap 
substitutes.

The Necessity of a Damper in a Fireplace 

During the Summer 

All flues are liable to downdrafts under certain conditions. In summer 
time when the atmosphere is warmer outside than inside, the air in a 
flue will drop, causing a downward draft, and blow out soot over fur- 
niture, rugs, draperies, etc. At this time a damper is absolutely neces- 
sary to close the flue. Ventilation through the flue is not as important 
at this time of year, because windows are usually open, allowing 
plenty of ventilation. In the months, however, when the atmosphere 
is colder outside than inside, the flue forms the nearest thing to perfect 
ventilation in any room, if the damper is open, and to be able to 
regulate this, as one wishes, is indeed a constant source of delight.
